VINCULA; a bond signifying union or unity
CLOSING RECEPTION FRIDAY, JULY 24TH, 7 – 8:30PM
REVERSE is happy to host the SVA MFA in Art Practice thesis show this year, VINCULA, featuring the work of Lou Woods and Tina Chavera. The exhibition will be on view at REVERSE from July 16th through July 24th.
Over time spent in the gallery and moments shared with visitors, this exhibition will be a cumulative display of participatory action. Through interactivity, viewers are invited to contribute and shape this shared visual landscape.
Lou Woods diverts explorations of selfhood outward by asking the viewer, “If I take your crumbs, will you take my hunger?” and seeks viewer action in exchange for access to a private library.
Tina Chavera invites the viewer to engage in learning a new craft and add to a growing community exchange. “If I share my craft with you, will you share some of your time?”
Both artists will be present in the gallery for selected times during this exhibition, building up to a final closing reception that celebrates the physical culmination of artist-viewer interaction.
